About Us

Outside of a dedication to ethically sourced and roasted coffee, our team has also started and run many of our own specialty cafes and retail brands.

We have also consulted on many projects as complex as starting a cafe to as simple as helping brands establish the right espresso and filter programs in their locations.

In other words, we know exactly what our wholesale clients are going through and we bring this experience to them as added value.

Charlie Coffee was founded in 2011 in the heart of Sydney. From our humble roots in our first cafe, we now bring our highly unique specialty coffee wholesale program to dozens of cafés along Australia's east coast.


SAXON GRIESE – DIRECTOR OF COFFEE AND MASTER ROASTER



Teenaged Saxon fell in love with coffee the moment he laid eyes on a sack of green beans and a little roaster sitting on top of a friend’s kitchen bench. The love affair has continued, with Saxon now travelling to the beans origin and sourcing green beans, roasting at the warehouse, or dropping in on a client. Whichever way you look at it, Saxon’s days are absolutely full of coffee.

He also brings a background in the corporate sector and across a number of start-ups.

LACHLAN GRANT – DIRECTOR OF BUSINESS
